i'm agree'n with W-nuts

don't blow the wad on a motor and your project will sit.. but u got a really nice motor on an engine stand...
i would also look for a running ltd or something like it. if i sell my bucket that's what i'm doing on a truck.. but i have a friend that has a running ltd for $700.. thats for the whole car.. look at your options and do the best for u...

I'm definently going to take my time. I'm making 2 different "budgets". One will be with "new" or special built parts (engine/tranny, etc.) the other with "used" and picked parts. I'm a very meticulus person, and very persistent also. I'll be giving myself a 2 year window to do the build. Ya'll don't know this, but I'm a disabled Veteran, so I'm home about 90% of the time. No problem as far as my time restraints are concerned. I'm pricing used Caddys and LTDs as well as pricing new. Learning a lot and enjoying the hell out of it....and I haven't even put wrench to bolt yet. Thanks again for all of the advice guys and gals, I really do appreciate it.

460 oil filter.

I don't know about your your oil filter, clearance issues. The FE factory filter casting for trucks pointed the filter sideways, the car filter points down. Ford Vans with 460's have a filter mounting casting that you can rotate as needed for more clearance, the van casting will work on anything that uses a ph 8A oil filter, mabe even and some Mopars that use Ford Filters. Some Heavy duty 460 vans and trucks also came factory with an engine oil cooler. If you get a 460 the first thing you want to do is get a double rolller timing chain kit and install it straight up. Factory smog years retarded the stock cam and lost about 30 HP.. the stock timing chains stretch and retard ign and cam after 10 to 20 K miles. A 460 single diaphram distributor vacuum can is adjustable. pull the hose and insert an 1/8 allen wrench to fine tune the advance.
